Guide Summary and Photographs

After a heavy storm over the last few days we had still a little bit of wind blowing and creating a little chop. We were slowly heading along the coastline towards our sister company Marine Dynamics, who offer the shark cage diving. And we have been lucky this time just after a few minutes we got to see a Great White shark trying to get hold of the bait but our bait handler, Alfred, was faster than the shark.

It was great to have a quick look at the shark, but we continued our tour to find some more marine wildlife. In the Pearly Beach area it has been very quiet so we changed course into deeper water in the hope to find a whale. Firstly we saw some Cape gannets diving and other seabirds trying to catch some fish. Seabirds are always a good indication for fish and marine life in the area. So, we have been lucky enough to spot a spout after a few minutes. It turned out to be a Bryde’s whale, it was difficult to have a look of these shy whales but we managed to see the blow and the tiny dorsal fin. Arrived in the Dyer Island Nature we made a pass at the Cape Fur seal colony on Geyser Rock. All the seals were very relaxed in the water as well as on land, they probably also happy that the storm is over. Closer to Dyer Island we saw a African penguin waddling over the beach and some more on the other side swimming back to the island.

It has been great to be back at sea and see so many different animals all over the bay.
